Become A Volunteer

Volunteering for the 2019 Festival.  

Volunteer opportunities for the Island's Folk Festival are now open.

You can be involved for the weekend, there are several crews with openings or take on a larger role as a coordinator. 

Coordinators attend planning meetings, organize and schedule the crew and then oversee operations of that crew during the weekend of the festival.

The Island's Folk Festival has several volunteer coordinator openings for 2019.

TEAR DOWN: Will not have to put in any hours until Sunday afternoon when tear down begins. Must be available Monday as well. Having a truck would be an asset!
